Los Angeles Clippers Team News 

The Clippers, after a difficult last season where they were crippled by injuries to the main players, will try to reach the big NBA Finals for the first time. And they have capacity and quality.

However, this season they are playing below expectations. There is a lot to do with lack of play, but also with the problems of injuries again. Kawhi Leonard is back, but again he is playing under restrictions. He missed the last three matches. The second “violin” of the team, Paul George, returned after a cold problem, but even he did not help the Clippers to avoid the second defeat in a row against the “on paper” bad Thunder.

This season, coach Tyronn Lue added a couple of serious players to his roster. The recovered former All-Star John Wall arrived, and if he is healthy this season, he will be a big boost for the Clippers. A player who is capable of scoring 30+ points for everyone. In addition to Wall, the excellent Norman Powell and Bruce Brown also arrived. Two players who will bring a lot to the breadth of the Clippers’ roster.

Very important for the Clippers and for breaking the series of three defeats, especially since the Pelicans are coming as their guests, who were decimated by the absence of two main players.

New Orleans Pelicans Team News 

The Pelicans are the team that changed the least this season. However, the biggest boost for Willie Green’s team is the return of Zion Williamson, who missed last season due to injuries and extra kilos he had. But, Zion is out of order again.

To make the problem worse for the Pelicans, Brandon Ingram, who is the best offensive “option” of the Pelicans, was also injured. In this match, the Pelicans will rely most on the points and offensive madness of C.J. McCollum, who in the absence of Zion and Ingram will take thirty shots if necessary.

The Pelicans have a great center line, in addition to Jonas Valanciunas, who scored 25 points for the Suns, there are also Eurobasket MVP Willy Hernangomez and “high flyer” Jaxon Hayes.

The New Orleans team defeated the Suns in the last match in Arizona, easily and convincingly. In addition to traveling, they also had less time to rest than the Clippers team.

Los Angeles Clippers vs. New Orleans Pelicans Prediction 

Leonard and Marcus Morris will not be available for the Clippers in this match, while for the Pelicans team, in addition to the already mentioned Ingram, there will be no Lewis, Lidell, while Daniels, Jones, and Zion are under questionable.

This is a must-win match for the team led by Lue, they are on a three-game losing streak, and they want to end that streak. A very weakened Pelicans team is coming to their feet, and George and company will have to put it in a higher gear. The match is played in matinee time, local time, which will probably contribute to the poor quality of the match.
